Burcu Perçin ( 1979, Ankara ) draws attention to social and environmental topics in her works, from abandoned warehouses to marble quarries, she emphasizes that it is not only nature that is lost but that it is also the future of humans that is lost. Perçin, who creates her visual narrative through a unique aesthetic language, ponders upon unemployment and poverty brought by globalization in industrial settings and shines a light on areas which people are more lonesome. One of her main brush topics is the artificial landscape created by humans, she brings together the old and new forms of man-made construction in nature in her works. Reminding us that past cultures and lives will bring light to our future, by blending the matters of our day with history and nature in her works. While integrating antique sculptures with nature, she uses abstract and real denotations together. Perçin opens up a new window to her artistic practice in her thoughts on nature through these works. The artist also expresses herself through sculpting and photography disciplines alongside painting. Her photo-collages, oil on photography, relief works composed of natural stones and sculptures that refer to antiquity show a strong parallel connection with her paintings.
